The main reason for buying a blender is usually to make smoothies. And a pretty good reason it is: there are infinite combinations of fruit and vegetables that will keep you healthy and energized for years to come.
But since we’re spending the money anyway, what else can we do with a blender?
Nothing can be more dramatic than chopping up onions. Forget all about it by putting all the ingredients in your blender (tomato, onions, avocado, and coriander) and start blending on low speed. The longer you leave it on, the smoother your guac will get. Don’t forget to finish it off with some salt and lime juice!
Another classic cocktail dip. Hummus is very easy to make in the blender, you just need to mix the chickpeas with garlic, lemon juice and sesame oil. But what makes it really interesting is to make different flavored hummus’: you can use beetroot, avocado, mushroom, red pepper… use your imagination and experiment! It will taste delicious and look great on the table.
3- Almond Flour
This is a great alternative to hard to find and costly gluten-free flours. You can make your own nut flour at home. Blend almonds using the pulse function for control. But be careful to not leave it too long, it will become butter!
4- Veggie Burgers
Veggie burgers are delicious- but also a lot of work to make from scratch. Use the blender for the perfect blend of veggies, legumes and spices in no-time. And no need to get your hands dirty either!
5- Peanut Butter
Who doesn’t love peanut butter? The problem is: you don’t know what else comes included with the peanuts, usually a lot of chemicals you don’t really want in your body. The good news is you can easily make a delicious peanut butter with your high power blender by just adding peanuts and a bit of olive oil. Enjoy!
Tip for Pro’s :
Did you know that a blender can clean itself? Put some warm water and soap in the jug and leave the blender on for 30-40 minutes. Rinse a few times and voilà!
